BABY PHOTO SHOOT AT HOME

This gorgeous little boy was just five days old when his mother emailed me about holding a baby photo shoot at home. As I read her email, I was instantly in awe of her amazing strength. Not only was she arranging a photo shoot days after giving birth, but she and her husband had just moved to Oxford from Australia!

TIME TO RELAX

Mother sat on a blue sofa holding a newborn baby boy with the father and pet dog looking over the back of the sofa

She mentioned in her email that the house was not as homely as she’d like. She needn’t have worried though as the house was lovely. Understandably, there were still a few packing boxes dotted around, but I simply worked around them and ensured they didn’t appear in the photos! This is why a photo shoot at home is so easy!

AS FEATURED IN VOGUE!

Amazing photo of new parents relaxing on a bed with a baby, As featured in vogue

This photo was taken in their bedroom as they relaxed on their bed. I chose to shoot really tight, focusing just on them not the decor. This lovely cozy moment really impressed the website team at www.vogue.it who featured it on their PhotoVogue platform! It’s extremely hard for professional photographers to get their work published there, so I was thrilled to be selected! You can read more about this amazing achievement by clicking here!

PHOTOGRAPHING ALL THE FAMILY

Another reason the family wanted a baby photo shoot at home was because their family were visiting from Australia and Korea. I must admit my Korean is non-existent so I relied heavily on hand actions but they soon got the hang of it!

BABY PHOTO SHOOT AT HOME

Because the traditional terraced houses in Oxford are unlike anything the baby may see in Korea or Australia, I wanted to capture the house as well as the family. I love the idea of them being able to look back on these photos in years to come and show him where he started his life. Even the packing boxes and dog crate in the garden will remind them of their relocation to the UK before his birth!

PHOTO WISH LIST

I always ask parents if there’s any specific shots they’d like me to capture. This family asked me to include their extremely cute Dachshund in the photos as, despite his size, he was a huge part of the family!

Photographing dogs is so much fun and this little chap was a superstar. He happily posed for the family photos and even agreed to having his own portrait taken whilst his owner fed the baby!
